Moon Knight: Why We Don’t Need a Season 2

Spoiler Alert: Dr. Strange within the Multiverse of MadnessThe most up-to-date addition to Marvel’s tv exhibits, Moon Knight, is broadly standard and has stimulated a number of conversations on faith and psychological well being. The sequence stars Oscar Issac as Steven Grant, Marc Spector, and Jake Lockley. He additionally portrays Mr. Knight and Moon Knight, the personas Steven and Marc tackle whereas performing because the Avatar for Konshu, the Egyptian god of the moon.

Viewers watch as Steven and Marc attempt to forestall Arthur Harrow (Ethan Hawke) from resurrecting Ammit, an Egyptian goddess recognized for her judgemental streak. They’re profitable of their job by the top (perhaps a little too profitable), however their journey appears to be removed from over.


Disney+ has not confirmed what awaits Moon Knight. While hypothesis over a season 2 continues to make the rounds, followers are curious the place Moon Knight’s story may go from right here. There are loads of choices, from Moon Knight showing in different movies and exhibits within the franchise, the character by no means showing once more, and even getting renewed for an additional season. Of all these choices, a second season does not look like the perfect manner for audiences to get to know Jake (and Steven, and Marc) and Konshu higher.

West Coast Avengers

With the introduction of Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) in Hawkeye, and Wanda/Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) seemingly coming down from the maintain the Book of the Damned had on her in Dr. Strange within the Multiverse of Madness, there may be the likelihood that the subsequent stage of each their involvements with the MCU is as a part of the West Coast Avengers. While the formation and story of the group must change drastically primarily based on the route the movies and exhibits have taken up to now, it could be a dynamic group of characters to see come collectively.

Moon Knight was invited to hitch them after saving members of the crew stranded in Ancient Egypt. While he did not stick with the group long-term, it could be the way in which to incorporate Moon Knight in future installments within the franchise and have him meet different MCU characters with out requiring a second season.

It can also be the way in which for the current Moon Knight identification, Jake Lockley, to point out he is not as evil as that remaining scene made him out to be or current him as a villain the remainder of the Marvel universe must be fearful about.

The post-credits scene of the ultimate episode gave a have a look at the place Moon Knight ended up after his wild experience via Duat. Steven and Marc imagine they’ve given up the persona for good, however a third identification, Jake Lockley, continues to be working on Konshu’s behalf. The different two appear to have no concept that Jake is there persevering with Konshu’s work, beginning with finishing the duty Steven and Marc could not do. While Harrow will not be round anymore, there are in all probability a number of enemies of Konshu’s that require a comparable quantity of consideration.

With reduce cameos from an Eternals character, the Moon Knight sequence works as a standalone. However, it may’t work as its personal entity endlessly. If Konshu begins sending Jake after extra of his enemies, the sequence could be compelled to constantly introduce new characters or use some that followers are already acquainted with. Rather than create one other season that additionally stands alone, the Avatar might be written into one other property, tying it along with somebody or one thing else. That might be the Eternals, just like the reduce cameos supposed to, or to Bishop and Maximoff like beforehand mentioned. Really, the probabilities are infinite and may present a higher viewing expertise than a second season would.

The Life of an Avatar

Jake is not the one Avatar we all know of; Layla (May Calamawy) is probably going nonetheless an Avatar for Taweret, taking over the persona Scarlet Scarab, although we won’t ensure but. The association between her and the Egyptian goddess of ladies and kids was presupposed to be non permanent, however there does not appear to be a manner that the human within the equation can extract themselves with out the god or goddess willingly deciding on one other Avatar. Layla wasn’t talked about within the post-credits, so audiences actually do not know the place she stands.

Rather than a second season targeted on Jake/Moon Knight, a restricted sequence on Layla could pack extra of a punch. Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn) is getting her personal sequence with the success of WandaImaginative and prescient, reasonably than one other season of the sequence, so it is not out of the realm of risk for Layla to obtain one. It would give the writers extra room to discover her character and backstory and nonetheless go away room for Isaac to return in some capability, particularly in flashbacks to their life collectively. Maybe Layla will even seem in different upcoming exhibits. Calamawy is definitely on board, hoping for crossovers with Agatha and Blade.

There’s no phrase on the place his journey will go but, however Moon Knight’s story is finest explored via avenues that are not a second season, regardless of the place he finally ends up subsequent.
